Before I get into why this beanie is life, I have a side story about it that I wanted to tell you guys about. So…lately, I have been loving the mix of hot pink, black, and white. I love the pop of color that the hot pink provides on the black and white canvas. Originally, I wasn’t aiming to wear a neon pink beanie for this look, but instead, I was looking for a hot pink coat – not only would it complete this look, but it would almost make a great addition to my wardrobe. You can never have too many statement coats!! As I went from store to store in the mall, I just wasn’t coming across a coat that was right. If I’m going to purchase a coat, I always make sure that it is a coat I can see myself getting a lot of use out of and one that fits perfectly. Basically…I need to be in love with it! As I was heading to the next store, still on the hunt for this pink coat, I passed one of those little bodegas, and this neon pink beanie caught my attention; I couldn’t help but to try it on! My mom, who joined my shopping adventure, looked at me like I had 10 heads. I was checking myself out in the mirror, and at that point, no one would be able to alter the love I had for this beanie! My mom was still definitely not a fan of it, but I convinced her that she had to see it styled first, before she could judge! Once she saw the full look, she couldn’t disagree anymore! The point of this message: always keep an open mind. If I wasn’t open to anything other than a pink coat, I would’ve never came across this bright beanie that is now a favorite of mine. I love that it is an inexpensive accessory, can easily be styled, and can add just enough color to an outfit that might need it! Even if you’re not a fan of pink, you can get any color beanie you prefer…I am currently on the hunt for more colors! I’m thinking about doing an all white look with a blue beanie! What do you guys think? Trix is a total girly girl, and pink is more her thing – so I’ll have to gauge her opinion on a blue beanie 😉 I’ll be sure to let you guys know!
Ah…so the end of the semester is 13 days away…so to say I am overwhelmed would be an understatement! As stressful and demanding as these next two weeks will be, a month long break will follow and serve as the ultimate reward. Can’t Wait! I have a lot of fun, planned posts that will be coming to the blog soon! Stay tuned loves!
